2000 Hail Marys - A Monthly Devotion of the Legion of Mary

Every second Saturday of the month, the church becomes busy with the prayerful devotion of the parish's Legion of Mary organization. The members of the LOM gather in church after the 6:00AM Mass to pray 2000 Hail Marys as their pledge and devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Old and young members alike take turns reciting the Rosary. This practice started late last year and continues to this day.

For those who are not initiated, it is a daunting experience to spend practically the whole day praying the Rosary 40 times. But for the devotees, this is their labor of love, a sacrifice and an offering that comes from the heart.
